Epilogue:

It's been two years since Naomi's death…

26th of June…

Her death anniversary…

Zero knelt by her grave.

I've graduated…

Naomi…

From Cross Academy…

At the age of nineteen…

Even if you weren't here…

I knew…

I always knew that you're there…

Always beside me…

You gave me strength…

To pick myself up…

Time and time again…

When I'm down…

Our promises to each other…

The connection to each other…

The connection between us…

I love you, Naomi…

The vampire opened his eyes and placed the bouquet of flowers on her grave.

Seven different flowers…

Each with a different meaning…

A butterfly orchid…

You are constantly on my mind…

A pink carnation…

I'll never forget you…

A white carnation…

A girl of pure innocence…

Forget-Me-Not…

True love and memories, stored in my heart…

An orange blossom…

Of innocence and eternal love…

A single full bloom rose…

I will still love you…

A cream-colored tulip…

I will love you, forever…

Until now, I've never known what kind of flowers you like…

So I brought this, hoping that you'll like at least one…

He got up and walked away, without turning back as the haunting melody drifted through his ears.

An azalea flower…

Zero…

Do you know what it stands for…?

I want you to take care of yourself for me…

He smiled as a gentle breeze blew.

" I promise… "

Note from 'moi': There! That's the end of the story! I want to thank you all, the reviewers out there! Arigato! Oh, and by the way if you did not notice. The name 'Avren' when you switch it around will be 'Raven'. M

Oh yeah, I want to hold a poll…

Do you like Naomi or Raven better?

Why?

I just wanted to ask…

Hee-Hee!!!

Oh yeah, the next sequel will come on only in November and NOT September cause my prelims and 'O' levels are on that month so I gotta concentrate!!!! The title of the sequel will be 'Bound By Blood'. So, all I can say is, WATCH OUT FOR IT…

And those who are my friends, I'll email you when the story do come out. This story will be the best one yet!!! And thank you all to my reviewers out there. Without you, I'll never have completed this story and have the strength to go on…
